Gap Prospers, Ralph Lauren’s Workwear and Spanish Shoes - 3/3/13

Gap Profits Soar

 

Gap’s recently released fourth-quarter numbers show a 61% rise in profits, to $351 million from $218 million a year ago, prompting a 1.3% rise in share prices after market close on Thursday. Compared to last year, Gap stores showed a 4% comparable gain, Old Navy rose 8% and Banana Republic was up 3%. As far as StyleForum is concerned, it’s difficult to see evidence – or justification – for these results, other than the fact that Gap is slowly adapting to the direction of menswear three years ago.

All About RRL

 

Do you like Ralph Lauren? Do you like really accurate vintage reproductions (that are also really expensive)? Take a look at RRL – Ralph Lauren’s shadowy, vintage-inspired and appropriately priced workwear line. 

 

All About Meermin

 

Meermin is fast becoming a low priced go to for posters fed up with clunky Allen Edmonds and Aldens. Sleek and Spanish-made, Meermin is a Carmina affiliated shoe brand that won’t break the back. Take a read.

In no sense is what I posted bullshit. RRL is appropriately priced, in that the price is -- as I said a sentence earlier -- expensive, and appropriate to the brand cache and provenance. 

 

And Meermin are absolutely a sleeker (and cheaper) alternative to Allen Edmonds or Alden.

I won't comment on the RRL related information, but Carmina and Meermin are not affiliated professionally, I believe the connection is only familial.
